COMPREHENSIVE COMMERCIAL BUILDING INSPECTION

The purpose of a Due Diligence Commercial Building & Property Inspection is to report on the condition and adequacy of the building structural systems and operating systems including the remainder of serviceable life expectancy and need for maintenance, repair, replacement and recommended upgrade.

Commercial Building & Property Inspection is a comprehensive investigation of the building structure and all the systems.  Included in our inspection protocol are:

  • Structure – concrete, steel and wood components

  • Building envelope – roof and sidewalls including windows and doors

  • Interior finishes – floors, walls and ceilings

  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning

  • Electrical system and components

  • Plumbing system and fixtures

  • Fire Suppression and life safety systems 

  • Landscaping including walks, drives, parking areas and planted areas

  • Storm water drainage 

SCOPE OF WORK

The initial concern to be addressed by Due Diligence Commercial Building & Property Inspection is current condition.  The inspector is called upon to investigate, assess and report on the condition of all structural components and all operating systems as well as fire suppression and life-safety systems and equipment.  Drives, roadways, parking and landscaping are also inspected and the inspector walks the parcel looking for signs of hazards or hazardous conditions on the subject property and on adjacent properties.   

For each item that is inspected it is the inspector’s intention to do the following:

  • Establish suitability for use 

  • Report on the need for repair or replacement

  • Recommend upgrades and improvements including energy use issues 

  • Establish remaining serviceable life expectancy 

  • Establish inspection and maintenance routines for your use during ownership/occupancy of the building.  

IMMEDIATE AND LONG-TERM COST BENEFIT

Our Due Diligence Commercial Building Inspection Protocol is designed to provide you with the information needed by you, your broker and your real estate attorney prior to finalizing your purchase contract or lease agreement and also to assist you in planning for operating costs by forecasting required structural and equipment maintenance routines and schedules.  The inspector will estimate remaining useful life of major components and discuss the two replacement strategies which are to replace items when they cease to be functional or to schedule replacement in advance.  The latter is helpful when failure of a building component would cease or slow down operations, damage equipment or inventory or make the building or a portion of the building uncomfortable or unfit for occupancy.

ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT

Complete information available at  Phase 1 Environmental Assessment 

A complete Due Diligence routine includes Phase 1 Environmental Assessment.  Commercial lenders and investors routinely require environmental assessment either as part of your application package or at minimum prior to loan closing.  In many cases the potential for loss as a result of environmental contamination eclipses potential costs resulting from building defects or systems failure.  Contamination on the property or under the property in soil or groundwater or a vapor intrusion condition can have potentially devastating effects.

LIABILITY PROTECTION

Since the enactment of the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) in 1980, the commercial real estate industry has had to deal with the harsh reality that a current owner or operator of a contaminated property could be held responsible for cleanup of the contaminated property regardless of whether it had anything to do with causing the contamination. 

Congress enacted the Superfund and Reauthorization Act (SARA) amendments to CERCLA in 1986 to provide liability protection to innocent landowners who unwittingly purchased contaminated property.  Commercial real estate purchasers can now be insulated from liability by the provisions of the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA).  The act provides for the following protections:  

  • Bona Fide Prospective Purchaser Liability Protection 

  • Contiguous Property Owner Liability Protection

  • Innocent Landowner Defense 

YOUR REQUIREMENTS

In order to qualify to apply for these defenses commercial real estate purchasers must perform All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI).  As a practical matter purchasers transfer most of their responsibility for AAI to an Environmental Professional who performs AAI as part of a comprehensive Environmental Assessment.  When the Assessment is fully and correctly completed by an Environmental Professional the purchaser may apply for CERCLA liability protection should it ever be necessary.

OUR QUALIFICATIONS

Our Environmental Professional holds university degrees, post-university environmental training and continuing education and also experience as a certified environmental laboratory director.  Due Diligence Inspection & Assessment Services has 25 years  experience assessing all types of property: commercial and industrialapartment, condominium; office, call center; warehouse, distribution, manufacturing; hotelmotel, restaurant and club; bank, retail, mall, plaza; gas station and automotive service and vacant and forest land.  We adjust our protocol to the specific characteristics of each property type and to meet the requirements of investors, buyers, sellers, owners, municipalities, attorneys, bankers and other lenders, brokers and insurance companies.
